Many parents today choose to have a nursery nook right in their master bedroom for several reasons: first and foremost, many young parents prefer to be able to see their baby at all times;
Second, not every home can accommodate an additional room for a child; and third, it may simply be more comfortable for other reasons. If you want to add a nursery nook to your bedroom, the following tips may be useful.
First, consider the space in your bedroom. Is there enough room for an entire nursery, or would it be better to have a crib? If your bedroom is small, stick with just a crib and move other pieces, like wardrobes and a changing table, to other rooms.
This will make your bedroom feel spacious and welcoming—both of which are important for a bedroom. Plus, you and your baby will be able to feel the difference.
You can place a baby crib next to the bed or even a suspended one, which will help to save even more space.
If your bedroom is big enough, you can create an entire baby’s nook complete with a crib, wardrobe, or makeshift closet for your baby, some shelves, a changing table, a mobile, artwork, and baskets or dressers for storage.
Choose whichever furniture pieces are best and most functional for you, and don’t forget to add some art and lighting to make the extra nook special.

Stick to the style
When incorporating a new element into your bedroom, like a crib or a nook, ensure it fits harmoniously with your existing space.
Choose furniture that matches the style and look of your bedroom so it doesn’t look out of place. The same goes for any decor items you might want to add.
I recommend avoiding too many childish items in the room so it doesn’t look like a large nursery. This is your space, too, so get inspired and have fun with it!

Why do babies sleep better in their parent’s beds?
Research shows that babies are healthier when they sleep close to their parents.
Babies who sleep with their parents have more regular heartbeats and breathing. They even sleep more soundly. And being close to parents is even shown to reduce the risk of SIDS.
Why do babies need to sleep in the same room for six months?
For the first six months of their life, your baby should sleep in the same room as you, day and night.
This will reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). In the early weeks, you may find that your baby only falls asleep when you or your partner are holding them or when you’re standing by the cot.
